In order to control an Allergic reaction, it is essential for the Specialist Doctor to understand the root cause of the allergy and if necessary, take action to control and treat the symptoms and avoidance of such symptoms. Allergy is common in children from early childhood though it may occur at any age. Infant allergy predominantly occurs as rhinitis and asthma.
Food allergies such as intolerance to milk, eggs, nuts, shellfish, etc. require diagnosis and monitoring by a Specialist Doctor, because the unnecessary removal of such food to your diet affects the growth of children.
